May the mind of Christ, my Saviour, Live in me from day to day, 
By His love and pow'r controlling All I do and say. 

IVIay the Word of God dwell richly in my heart from hour to hour. 
So that all may see I triumph Only through His pow'r. 

May the peace of God, my Father, Rule my life in everything. 
That I may be calm to comfort Sick and sorrowing. 

May the love of Jesus fill me. As the waters fill the sea; 

Him exalting, self abasing. This is victory. 

May I run the race before me. Strong and brave to face the foe, 

Looking only unto Jesus As I onward go. 

May His beauty rest upon me As I seek the lost to win. 

And may they forget the channel, Seeing only Him. 


Crown Iliin wiih many trowns. {\\v I.anih u|>m His Throne; 
Hark, how the hoa\rnl\ anthorn ilrowns All musii' hut its f)wn! 
Awake, my s«>ul. and sins Of Him Who died for thci\ 
And hail Him as thy niatihl»~.s King ThrouRh all eternity. 

Crown Him the .Son of (;<h1 Before the worlds bei'.an. 

And ye. who tread where He hath triwl. Clrown Him the .Son of Man; 

Wh<i every jjrief haih known That wrings the human breast. 

And takes and boars them for His own That all in Flim may rest. 

Crown Him the Lord of life. Who triumphed o'er the grave. 
And rose victorious in the strife I'or those He rame to save; 
His glories now we sing Who died, and rose on high. 
Who died, eternal life to bring. And lives that death may die. 

Crown Him the Lord of love! Behold His hands and side. 
Rich wounds, yet visible above. In beauty glorified: 
All hail. Redeemer, hail! For Thou hast died for me: 
Thy praise shall never, never fail Thrnuphnut eternity. 


Majestic sweetness sits enthroned Upon the Saviour's brow; 

His head with radiant glories crowned. His lips with grace o'erflow. 

His lips with grace o'erflow. 

No mortal can with Him compare. Among the sons of men; 
Fairer is He than all the fair That fill the heavenly train. 
That fill the heavenly train. 

He saw me plunged in deep distress, He flew to my relief; 
For me He bore the shameful cross And carried all my grief. 
And carried all my grief. 

To Him I owe my life and breath. And all the joys I have; 

He makes me triumph over death. And saves me from the grave. 

And saves me from the grave. 

Since from His bounty I receive Such proofs of love divine. 

Had I a thousand hearts to give. Lord, they should all be Thine, 

Lord, they should all be Thine. 


Rejoice, the I^rd is King: Your Lord and King adore! 
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing. And triumph evermore: 
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 

Jesus, the Saviour, reigns. The God of truth and love; 

When He had purged our stains. He t<x)k His seat above: 

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 

His Kingdom cannot fail. He rules o'er earth and heav'n: 

The keys of death and hell Are to our Jesus giv'n: 

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 

Rejoice, in glorious hope! Our Lord the Judge shall cxime. 

And take His .servants up To their eternal home. 

Lift up your heart, lift up your voitv! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Guard Thou our ways, our thoughts, our tongues, our hearts; 
Help us to trust the Word which Thou hast spoken. 
That from Thy paths, our feet may ne'er depart.

Let mind and heart be taught Thy holy will; 
Then lead us forth, amid this world's commotion,

Thine, Thine the power by which alone we live; 
Help us each day to bear the cross with meekness, 
Till Thou at last the promised crown shah give.
